Some similarities from the Roman Government and the United States Government are that they both feature the Executive and Legislative branches, both governments had their checks and balances embedded and both lead executives have veto power. Some differences between the Roman Government and the United States Government is that Roman Consuls ( 2 people) had served for 1-year terms while U.S president's (1 person) had served 4-year terms, the Roman Government did not had a separate judicial branch while the U.S Government had a separate judicial branch and Roman Senators served for life while American Senators served for 6-year terms.

Evaluate the Roman Republic
In the Roman Republic, it started out with the census. For every 5 years, each Roman male has to register in Rome for the Census. He had to declare his family, riches, slaves, wives and children. If any of the Roman Men fail to do this, all of his riches will be confiscated and he would be sold into slavery. In the civilized city, the concept of Roman life seemed to center around the city, be this the city of Rome itself or any other town. A truly Roman civilized citizen had to be more educated or successful. A Roman needed a community, a family or at least a group of friends around him. If Romans lived in cities throughout the empire, then their greatest city, naturally, was the city of Rome itself. Had originally started as a small settlement on the Palatine Hill it had grown into the greatest city of the ancient world. People in the Forum varied considerably as the day went by. The life in Forum reaches it' height at 11:00 every day (Rome's fifth hour). Wheeled vehicles were prohibited from driving on the streets of Rome from sunrise to 4:00pm (Rome's tenth hour). Romans get up early and start a 6 hour day. The women stayed home. Ostia was a hive of activity because goods are coming overseas on ships and was loaded onto barges and was carried up the river to the great capital.

If you create your own Government, what pieces of the Roman Republic's Government would you include?
If I create my own Government, pieces of the Roman Republic's Government I would include are the 2 consuls, the Senators and the Assembly because the consuls they can choose the Senators, they ran the government, overseeing the work of other government officials, they directed (commended) the army, they acted like judges and in an emergency, consuls can choose a dictator as a single ruler to make quick decisions. Also, the Senators advised the consuls and the assembly, directed spending, including tax money, approve or disapprove laws made by the Assembly and made decisions concerning relationships with foreign powers. In addition to this, the assembly elected the 2 consuls, elected government officials including judges, voted on laws suggested by government officials and declared war or peace.
